The pictures are great in this book. If I could pick one thing to rave about, it would be the illustrations, both of the fingerings and the visual displays of musical timing.

However, it's a rather confusing guide and if I didn't already know how to play the whistle and had only this book to go on, I would certainly be left in confusion. I would highly reccomend Bill Och's book put out by the Clarke company. It comes with a very clear book of instruction and a CD of all the music you will play (nearly a hundred songs).

I bought this book because I also bought a penny whistle recently, and I was hoping to pick up better sight reading with it. The book has a visual guide (a straight bar with the number of holes covered that you have to cover to play the note, and then it unfortunately transitions way too fast to basic notes. I feel like there's a step in between that would make that far easier.

All in all, it was an okay book, but it's a very flimsy tiny paperback with no more than twenty pages. About two thirds of those pages were just sheet music, not instructions or tips. I was expecting more for my price.

This book is 40 pages of mostly how to tell time and where to put your fingers on a high D Whistle. 14 simple songs are included. No ornamentation, no mention of other whistles in other keys, takes about 10 minutes to read. VERY LARGE GRAPHICS with very little content. It does NOT teach you all you need to become an accomplished player.

Excellent book, good use a little larger font as far as the writing goes, getting older, need everything super sized. Will definatly use this book a lot. Do wish that it would explain a little bit more about certain techniques, but other than that its an excellent book.

I am sure this is a great book. Unfortunately, I can't use it. I have a pennywhistle in the key of C, and this book is for key of D. It doesn't say that anywhere in the description or on the cover. I learned that when I opened the book and found it in teeny-tiny letters. So, buyer beware if you have a pennywhistle in another key!
